ryan and marco rubio but for mike huckabee and rand paul it's rely goi to be ferocious. >> rose: so who is richard nixon in this? >> it's going to be fun. >> rose: what is richard nixon in this scenario, albert? >> who is richard nixon? well, he was -- >> mitt romney comes back? >> he was already president in '68 but the democrats went through the -- there was the john connolly wing nut before he became a republican, there was mcgovern, musky, so i think the -- it there's going to be the equivalent of that now. >> rose: john harris, do you have any sense of what the president -- has he thought about how he wants to ghovrn the second term or is he simply thinking about having an opportunity to govern in the second half. >> it's an opportunity. and the way to look at the mandate is if he wins reelection, the republican mandate to stop him he hopes has been eliminated. probably what he wants to do is take up the unfinished agenda from 2011. that is get back the fiscal cliff, force both sides-- his theory is-- to deal with the so-called grand bargain on fiscal issues. and if that's right--
biden and representative paul ryan have very different views on how to apply their faith to their politics. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life. but i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians and muslims and jews and -- i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. our faith informs us in everything we do. >> in many ways, those differences mirror differences among grassroots catholic voters. at one end of the spectrum are strongly conservative catholics who tend to stress issues around abortion. at the other end are more liberal catholics who stress issues of economic justice. then there are those in the middle. >> there are, if you will, biden catholics and ryan catholics, and both campaigns are struggling very hard to get those groups mobilized. but then there are a lot of catholics who are in the middle, who might agree with the republicans on one issue and with the dem
, there were probably 20 to 30 people in line. >> reporter: while wisconsin native paul ryan tops the republican ticket with mitt romney, the economy was more important to the voters we spoke to than badger state pride. >> right now, i'm unemployed, so whoever is going to make it better, i'm all for that. >> reporter: in september, the unemployment rate in wisconsin was 7.3%; when president obama was elected in 2008, the state's unemployment rate was 5.9%. while the state has added only 4,100 jobs from january through september of this year, the improving national employment numbers appear to be working in the president's favor. >> in the beginning of the year, only one in five voters said that the economy has gotten better in the past year. in the most recent poll, that number has increased to one in three, saying the outlook is looking better for the state. >> reporter: and that appears to be the perception that many voters here had. >> i think the economy is starting to get better as we go along here. >> i think jobs are now opening, you know, a lot of jobs are offering help no
to do is change the tonthe. and i think what impacted us in the vp debate when paul ryan was asked about roe vs. wade, that scared women about back alley abortion. >> we can't talk about women as the unified block. you've got the white married woman that went with romney. 96% of african-americans, 76% hispanic, minority coalition and the single women that obviously the democrats did a smart play with the single women in threatening -- and i got a bunch of those direct mail pieces saying, oh, the republicans are going to take away your access to contraception, which is totally not true. >> oh, i'm sorry -- >> wait, wait, wait. >> sure. >> first of all, i want to switch to women in congress. we'll get to more how people voted in the next segment. so the republican party lost two moderate women, kay bailey hutchison and olympia snow. is the republican party going to try to lure back women like that to run for the senate in the house? >> they need to. even when i ran for office in 2010, no one was out to recruit me as a woman. no one was out to recruit me as a black woman, and they need to r
was not someone to be trusted. he revealed himself in that 47%, and paul ryan did the same thing talking about takers and givers. what he did it is disconfirm t -- just to confirm that this is who he is. >> where does the party go from here? does it need to brebuild? >> yes, it needs to rebuild. romney and the republicans have become the rip van winkle party could they have awakened from their slumber to find that there are black and brown people in america and the jews and asians, and somehow they have all been given the vote. how did this happen? [laughter] they have been bribed. they have been giving gifts to these strange people. >> they are all special interest groups. they are not part of the whole. nine people getting some relief - -- young people getting some relief -- >> but you have responsible republicans saying we need to reach more to hispanics -- >> marco rubio said yesterday, "i don't know these people who don't want to work." these republican governors, if you are in a gerrymandered house is to, you could do the 47%. if you are part with any presidential aspirations, you cannot
campaign went in there and they've been challenging hard. >> the home state of paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side so it's a blow for the republicans. >> it came into play when he was the nominee and it means absolutely... i think it means absolutely romney has to carry ohio. if he didn't carry ohio he could get through the 270 through wisconsin and colorado. if he doesn't have wisconsin, that makes ohio even more important for him. >> yes, even though wisconsin has been consistently democratic it was carried by 5,000 votes by al gore and 10,000 votes by john kerry. i mean itas very, very close. so this is a real plus for the obama folks and a real roadblock because in view of scott walker's emergence and dominance of that state as the governor not simply winning the governorship but then beating back the recall efforts so effectively as he did... >> ifill: remember when we were at the republican national convention the most popular people in the room, the most population delegation, reince priebus beings every time the name wisconsin came up because of
're saying why should we compromise when you attacked us on the paul ryan budget and we're still standing? voters voted for us. so i think it's less likely we're going to see kind of a grand compromise because both sides are very entrenched. >> woodruff: even with that small pick-up of democrats in the house and even though the presidential vote was bigger than the overall house republican vote? >> right. i mean that's... both camps, you know,. >> woodruff: we'll have an argument. >> i think when it comes to the .. tre's all sorts of discussion on the fiscal cliff. president obama and speaker boehner are probably more willing to compromise, but their caucuses and their parties are very entrenched. i don't think we know what's going to happen out of this. >> woodruff: we certainly don't. nathan gonzales of the rothenberg political report, thank you for coming back to talk to us. >> thank you so much. >> brown: now that new york and new jersey have been hit by two destructive storms in less than two years, there's new urgency to questionsbout steps to better protect the region. hari sreeniv
, the joe biden wing and the -- >> the joe biden catholics and paul ryan catholics and they didn't agree on a whole lot this time around. >> but i think at the end of the day, cardinal dolan who heads the bishops' conference, is in a lot, a lot of ways, in the same position as speaker boehner in the house and they're going to have to work with this president whether they like it or not. they tried maybe to defeat him. it didn't work. but i think cardinal dolan at his heart is a pragmatist and wants to get something done and the question is how they're going to work together. i think they'll be forced to work together. >> everyone talks about the message being "okay you guys, go back to washington, make some compromises, get something done." it's not clear exactly what's to be done although everyone agrees immigration is one of the things that's very high. but a lot of people see this fiscal cliff coming, the need for congress and the president to get together to prevent big, big cuts in spending and big, big increases in taxes. so, how can the religious communities help in that? >> well,
paul ryan on the ticket. yesterday, the campaign brought a surprise star-- ann romney to the green bay field office to greet volunteers. ( applause ) her husband had cancelled a visit to wisconsin in the wake of sandy, as had president obama, who'd planned to speak at a rally in green bay last night. both turned their efforts to the storm on the east coast. and in green bay, ann romney talked up storm relief. >> this is a time for us to care -- all americans-- to reach out and help others. >> hello, this is marley. i'm calling from organizing for america. >> reporter: of course, democratic volunteers were also working hard at their local office in another part of town. the president, in fact, has more than twice as many field offices in the state as romney more boots on the ground. and the competition for door- knocks and one-on-one contact here is intense. mary ginnebaugh is brown county democratic party chairman. >> we had a huge canvass the last two weekends, knocking on doors, talking with people. we have just been working really hard to identify the people that we know are sort of
going. >> woodruff: a charge his running mate paul ryan continued later in colorado. >> he's got a new idea for the >> you know, we already have a secretary of business. it's actually called the secretary of commerce. that's what this... that's what this agency does. >> woodruff: meanwhile, vice president joe biden spent the day in iowa, where he attacked ryan's budget plan. >> look, ryan saying that his budget doesn't cut-- it just slows-- is a little like romney standing in an unemployment line and saying to the unemployed guy, look, i want to make it clear to you: i didn't outsource your job; i just offshored your job. >> woodruff: in fact, today the candidates, their running mates, spouses and surrogates blanketed seven toss-up states around the country. former president bill clinton has hit the trail hard, appearing today in wisconsin and ohio on behalf of the president. >> but i am far more enthusiastic four years ago. >> woodruff: clinton was in minnesota earlier in the week, where the romney campaign recently announced a new ad buy. it's a place both sides had earlier assumed w
it >> warner: ohio so crucial that romney's running mate paul ryan was there today to too. on the heels of stops in nevada, colorado, and iowa. romney's day won't end until midnight after an election eve rally in manchester, new hampshire. >> woodruff: late monday in a surprise move romney announced he will hit the trail one final time tomorrow touching down on election day in both pennsylvania and ohio. margar talked with romney's communications director, gail gitcho, about the campaign's micro-targeting "get out the vote" effort, called the orca project, named for the killer whale. find that video online. >> ifill: coming up, we'll have much more on the end to the campaign, including the final push in ohio; state of the race analysis from rothenberg, page, and kohut; voter access to polling places, and initiatives on the ballot; plus, the slow recovery after the storm, and a day in the life of a hard-hit brooklyn neighborhood. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> woodruff: the violence in syria swept up a new group today. fiting raged near a palestini
's absolutely possible. marco rubio or paul ryan are associated with the tea party. so certainly. but going back to something leslie said, it's how you communicate these issues. you can't be talking about electrified fences and cattle prods when you're talking about immigration. look, the country is for border security and a reasonable immigration policy but it's how you communicate it. >> brown: what about on various other social issues. we s forhe fst te g marriage, for example, same-sex marriage. >> when it comes to gay marriage or abortion women in this country aren't turned off by people are pro-life, there are people who will pro-life in all of our families. they're opposed to people sounding like cavemen when they talk about being pro life. so there's a smart way to communicate these issues. >> brown: so keep the policy but change the way you talk about it and who you talk to? >> be rational and reasonable and understand there's a different view but trying to find common ground without compromising your principles. in our movement conservatives hear oderze a ada" a they hear "liberalize"
